Hi I have been lurking for a few days. Scared and not really sure what to ask. There is so much I don't know and some I don't want to know.
I was diagnosed w Uterine cander thru a biopsy on 1/24. CT scan before surgery showed no evidence of cancer outside the uterus. Gyn/onc even drew :-)) a smile on the e-mail he sent. I had laproscopic hysterectomy Tuesday 2/11. Somehow during that I got a tear in my vagina but it didn't seem to be a problem and surgery went well otherwise. Dr told me cancer had eaten well into the lining but didn't appear to go thru. Several samples were taken for pathology but no results for a while. Now comes the part that has me confused - he said I will have internal radiation no matter what reports show. (I was so dopey didn't even think to ask why) He also said most people tolerate it well. I think he even told me how many times but again - dopey. Of course I'll find out more at my next visit. But until then - does this sound typical to you?
